APPLICATION FOR AN ORDER TO EXONERATE PROPERTY BOND
Defendant General Vang Pao, through his attorneys, hereby requests that the Court order the $1.5 million property bond securing his release be exonerated and that his passport be released to his attorney John Balazs because all charges have been dismissed.
On July 13, 2007, U.S. Magistrate Judge Drozd ordered defendant General Vang Pao released on a $1.5 million property bond to be secured by the following four properties:
1) 18219 Randall Avenue, San Bernardino, California;
2) 3586 N. State Street, Fresno, California;
3) 14551 Golders Green Lane, Westminister, California; and
4) 674 Mockingbird Court, Merced, California.
On September 18, 2009, U.S. District Judge Frank C. Damrell, Jr. granted the government's motion to dismiss all charges against General Vang Pao. Thus, General Vang Pao applies for an order that the bond be exonerated and the deeds securing the bond be reconveyed to their owners.
